We're anticipating an apology or clarification to be issued shortly, but a new interview with Mark Wahlberg is causing some controversy today. The two-time Oscar nominee made a bold statement about the attack on the World Trade Center and how he could have prevented it.
Men's Journal released some highlight quotes from a new interview with Mark, and it picked a really juicy one.
In the issue, the movie star discusses how he was scheduled to be on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center on Sept. 11.
“If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did," Mark says. "There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, ‘Okay, we’re going to land somewhere safely. Don’t worry.’ ”
Now, to be fair, Men's Journal hasn't posted the complete interview, so the context of the quote is unknown.
Still, the quote is already receiving criticism.
What do you think of what Mark said? Should he issue an apology?
